One Final Lie from Martin O’Malley

You may have seen former Governor Martin O’Malley’s pathetic bid for relevance on the Baltimore Sun’s op/ed page prior to the election, where he makes baseless allegations of corruption against Governor Larry Hogan.

The frame of O’Malley’s nonsense hangs on the thin plaster of Our Maryland’s shoddy research.

Our Maryland is the dark money funded Democratic front group founded by progressive activists and Annapolis machine hacks.

Our Maryland claims that the Governor’s real estate firm, which is in a separate trust, benefitted “from decisions made by employees in his administration.”

These claims are demonstrably and provably false.   Easily accessible public records show that initial planning and engineering decisions on the transportation projects Our Maryland claims benefitted the Hogan Companies, were in fact made during…

You guessed it, The O’Malley administration.

Here’s a quick Fact vs. Fallacy table that breaks down Our Maryland’s hatchet job.
